Question How Big before I have to Lengthen?

03 Rubicon, Need new shocks and have 2 " coil spacers in right now. How large of a lift can i go without having to lengthen anything that doesnt come in a kit (i.e. Drive shaft)... And also suggestions?

3.5" is max for a stock TJ Rubi DS. After that you need a CV unless you do a drop shovel. BTW I see you want to run 35's better think about new shafts and gears if you do it.
4.10's + 35's = turd
35's + front locker + wheeling = broken front shafts
